KAMLOOPS — NEW: Snowfall Warning issued for South Thompson - snowfall, with total amounts of about 10 cm is expected.
A period of heavy snow is expected tonight as an intense Pacific warm front moves through. The snow is expected to ease overnight.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
EARLIER: Southern Interior residents are once again bracing for another blast of winter storm activity.
Environment Canada says that storm should hit some time tonight, and has issued a series of snowfall and winter storm warnings.
While Kamloops itself isn't subject to any warnings, Forecaster Alyssa Charbonneau says we will still get a significant blanket.
"We are expecting that we will not see the heaviest of that snow. We are forecasting about 5cm to 10cm tonight, into tomorrow. The North Thompson is included in that snowfall warning, where they can expect to see anywhere from 15cm to 25cm," explained Charbonneau.
The North Okanagan and Shuswap regions are also covered by warnings, and Charbonneau says the high mountain passes will get a large accumulation.
Predicted poor weather is already taking its toll on flights through Kamloops Airport.
The evening Air Canada Express flights to and from Vancouver have been cancelled.
